When to Suspect Child Maltreatment

In July 2009 The National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) published a quick reference guide 'When to suspect child maltreatment'.

The guidance was updated in December 2009.

This quick reference guide is for all healthcare professionals working in the NHS who work with children and young people. It may also be of interest to people outside of the NHS who work with children and young people.

This guidance is available in an online 'Web enabled' version, or as a PDF file;
